The Armato family has been involved in the olive trade and the production of olive oil for multiple generations. It was over three decades ago in 1982 that we were first introduced to Aldo Armato. Aldo was small in stature and modest in nature but fiercely proud of his long family tradition of producing olive oil from the ancient groves of trees (exclusively the Taggiasca variety) planted in the hills above the town of Alassio on the Ligurian coast.
Aldo and Laura’s legacy has been handed down to their daughter, Alessandra, and her husband, Giordano Mazzariol. Alessandra and Giordano form a handsome and dynamic couple whose energy and intelligence effect continuous improvement in the quality that blesses this lovely olive oil. They have combined their talents to extend the use of their locally renowned olive oil to make a series of products that are devastatingly delicious.
Aldo and his wife, Laura, built their impeccable “frantoio” (olive press) on the ground floor of their house, a few blocks above the bustling town center of Alassio which sits on the northern shores of the Mediterranean Sea.
